We received a letter from the MTC President's wife, Sister Reber. So I guess there is proof that he really is there. Here is a copy of her letter and some pictures she took of the missionaries.
Dear Parents, Friends, Siblings, Bishops,
This is Sister Reber, wife of the MTC President. Your missionary has safely arrived at the MTC. We have had trouble with creating ldsmail email accounts for many of the missionaries....so although they have tried to email you, it hasn't worked. I am sending a few photos of the group. They are a small group of 14 missionaries from 8 different countries: USA, Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, Ireland, Swaziland, Dubai, and Tanzania.
There are 11 Elders and 3 Sisters. This is the first time we have had a missionary from Ireland....or Dubai. But Elder Bukenya, is Ugandan....working in Dubai. They study together, sing together, eat together, play volleyball together, and pray together.
We are blessed that they are all happy and healthy and eager to learn. Thank you for sharing them with us. I'm sending a few photos of their arrival....and also of one where many are eating gem squash for the first time. The food here in South Africa is very good.
Love, Sister Janet Reber
South Africa MTC
